NEW YORK, March 26 (UPI) -- Syfy says it has commissioned a script for a half-hour U.S. comedy pilot starring Jonathan Silverman from Sony and Happy Madison Productions.
Michael Rosenbaum, who created the show, will co-star, the network said.

Happy Madison and Doug Robinson will serve as executive producers along with Adam Goldberg, Rose and Bomb Productions, and Untitled Entertainment.
Silverman is known for his roles in the TV series "Gimme a Break!" as well as in the films "Brighton Beach Memoirs," "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," "Caddyshack II," "Little Big League," "Weekend at Bernie's" and its sequel.
